Why implement a wellness program into your workplace?
Employers need healthy employees. Healthy employees are happier, more productive, and will help even the best companies become better. There are several ways to help employees be healthy. One of the best ways is by beginning an office wellness program for your employees.
Wellness Programs improve morale, reduce absenteeism, add to the health and productivity of the participants and are essential in settings where employees are either sedentary or doing repetitive actions most of the day. When an employer wants to begin a wellness program for their company they should think about their employee needs. What in your employees life or workplace is hurting their health? Is it weight, stress, workplace ergonomics, unhealthy lifestyle, healthcare costs, etc.? Figuring out what the group of employees needs help with is the first step.
Dr. Wickstrom opened I Heart My Spine Chiropractic Clinic with the mission to “Heal the community.” Unfortunately, most employers do not have the employee resources or funds for a wellness program. Therefore, Dr. Wickstrom has begun giving back to the community through workshops free to businesses, and non-profit organizations. These workshops are a great start for any organization wanting to educate and improve the health of their employees.
A comprehensive workplace wellness program can consist of numerous different venues including, lunch and learn workshops, company fitness programs and on-site healthcare. Our hope at I Heart My Spine is that these free workshops will be a catalyst to a healthier, happier, and more productive community.
Workshops that Dr. Wickstrom offers:
Nutrition, The Un Diet, Exercise, Peace Management, Ergonomic Workplace, Sit N’ Fit, and others.
